Top 7 qualify for the final

Scottish National River Championship
Heat 1 - 3rd May

What a day! Raining, windy and cold from the outset.

River conditions worsened through the day as the Sawmill stream and other smaller burns came down in spate and dirty rising the main river approximately 2ft in the afternoon.

That said odd fish were rising in more sheltered spots. Swung wet fly and nymph seemed to do best with a lot of fish taken close in.

The 12 anglers caught and returned a total of 75 fish giving a rod average of 6.25. Top rod with 17 fish was Dick Logan, with second place going to Mike Cordiner with 11 fish and third spot going to Simon Cocker who had 10 fish. A further three qualified for the final namely Ian Runcie, Rab Maxwell and Richard McHattie.
